Police declined to give further information until Thursday, but a Texas State student and a Texas State employee said several of the fliers have been found around campus.

"Now that our man Trump is elected and Republicans own both the Senate and the House -- time to organize tar & feather vigilante squads and go arrest and torture those deviant university leaders spouting off all this diversity garbage," at least one of the fliers reads, according to a photo that the university community is sharing.

University President Denise Trauth had shared a letter Wednesday with students about the election encouraging students to seek to understand the divisions in the country.

"We know that those who are a part of our university community have different opinions and that, in this time of transition in our national leadership, members of our community are expressing their thoughts and concerns. Discourse is fundamental to the academic enterprise, and this university strives to protect it. As Bobcats our aim should be to better understand that which causes divisions among us and to work toward strengthening our bond as a university community."

Trauth did not mention the threatening fliers in her letter.
